The rest of the holy Sabbath.@Exodus 16:23

George H. Binkley, in The Voice of Praise (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania: James Robison, 1873), number 539.

Milwaukee (Prothero) Daniel W. Prothero (1866-1934) (🔊 pdf nwc).

I thank Thee, Father, that I live
To see this day of Thine;
This day of rest, this day of peace,
Proclaims Thy love divine.

Today, I thank thee, most of all,
For Thy best gift of love;
The gift of Christ, whose saving grace
We all, today, may prove.

And when the evening shades of life
Bring slumber and repose,
Oh, may I see Thee face to face,
Where Sabbaths never close!
